Find out more about McCarthy Buildling Companies in an article in The Registry, a Bay Area real estate journal. According to the article, “The project is the first in the district to utilize a Progressive Design-Build delivery method, a collaborative process in which one entity – the design-build team, comprised of builder and designer – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. This growing trend allows for each partner to bring forth their unique qualifications and capabilities as a basis for selection and transforms the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance, fostering collaboration and teamwork, with high-level results.”
